Wow...fraud

Recommended Posts

I posted an ad looking for rear fenders a day or so ago.  I have been bombarded with fraud calls ever since.  Five in the first day.  Be careful out there everyone.

Remove your phone number and tell them to send you a PM instead. Good luck....

The last one I got was a week ago offering to sell me a rim. It is not only DB members read articles on this forum.

How could you discern that they were fraudulent calls?

Let us know the modus operandi so we can learn from 

your experience.

 

Myself, I appreciate having a phone number in an ad.

I might see an ad on a forum to which I don't belong,

and if there's no contact information, I can't send a

private message.  After all, most ads in Hemmings

Motor News and its website have phone numbers.

I remember back in the old days of Hemmings adding your phone number cost an extra seven cents, having it in the ad showed you were a high roller. bob

The shame is I remember back in the sixties when you could not post pictures, we would just talk to the seller on Hemmings and take their word for the quality. Never was disappointed, ever.  The world has changed.  If you had a part that someone needed to finish their project, money was not the major factor. God help us
